Well Fed Savannah is sponsoring the Savannah Food Day Festival Saturday, Oct. 22 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mother Matilda Beasley Park on East Broad Street. What is Food Day? Organizers describe it as “an Earth Day for Food.”
“Aimed at promoting healthy, sustainable, affordable, and just food systems in America, Food Day is a national grassroots mobilization backed by some of the most prominent voices for energizing the food movement … people will gather at events big and small and from coast to coast in homes, schools, colleges, churches, city halls, farmers’ markets, supermarkets, and elsewhere to raise awareness about food issues and advocate for change.”
The Savannah event includes live music, vendors, exhibitors and workshops. The festival is free and open to the public. The Savannah Bicycle Campaign will provide valet bike parking throughout the event.
